Compliance Does Not Equal Security


It is vital for an organization’s leadership to ensure they know both the value of the information assets they possess, and the level of cyber threat and vulnerability the company is facing. They must understand their real probability of a significant data breach, in order to determine the potential financial impact of the company’s cybersecurity preparedness or lack thereof.   The reality today is many companies have relied too much on conducting just a cybersecurity compliance checklist assessment, often using either a generic cybersecurity standard, or an industry-based cybersecurity risk assessment framework.
While these cybersecurity compliance assessments are good tools to evaluate the current state of cybersecurity policies, plans, and procedures, they alone are insufficient to ensure real cybersecurity.  This whitepaper highlights the appropriate actions organizations can take both before and after a cyber data breach to mitigate the potential negative impacts and optimize business performance results.
